Now accepting campus applications for the Udall Undergraduate Scholarship

Submitted by Miranda Moore

The Udall Foundation was established to honor the commitment to Native American self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources, demonstrated by Morris and Stewart Udall throughout their long careers in public service.

The Udall scholarship seeks to recognize this legacy by awarding scholarships in two distinct areas. First, they recognize students who are committed to positive change in regards to environmental issues. Second, they recognize Native American/Alaska Native students who are committed to making a difference through tribal public policy or native health care. If either of these describes your career interests, and you are a sophomore or junior, please consider applying.

The Udall scholarship awards up to $7,000 for tuition/fees and living expenses for an academic year. U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents with relevant leadership, volunteer or professional experience, and/or activism are encouraged to apply.

Campus applications are due Oct. 16. To request a copy of the campus application, please email Jim Hohenbary, the Udall faculty representative for Kansas State University, at jimlth@k-state.edu. If students have questions or would like to discuss other scholarship options, please contact the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships at 785-532-3422 or visit the website at ksu.edu/nationalscholarships.
